I believe I speak for the team if I say we prefer if you work directly
on the git repository, because then interested people can look at the
commit logs via de commits mailing list.

BTW, all those externals seem to come from the same repository. I'm not
quite familiar with Pd's release workflow, but it seems to me that
externals are not released independently of pd. In such a case, it might
be better so create a single source package that builds all of these
externals? Indeed, there seems to already be a makefile to build all of

Finally, you might want to also take over pd-zexy (orphaned: #546964) as
part of the same source package (also at the same svn repository).
